RHYL's weekly street market will stay after its temporary planning permission was made permanent.
The market, held on Thursdays and Saturdays, will continue to operate after a decision by Denbighshire Council's planning committee.
But conditions have been imposed on the market, including no hot food being served while land behind Rhyl Town Hall will not be used for the market.
Rhyl town councillor said: “The market brings people into the town. The people who come go to the other shops, it does help the town.
“Anything that can help the town at the moment is good.”
Temporary planning permission was granted for the market last year and it has been running on a trial basis.
Objections for the latest application have been received from local business and customers including a 180-name petition.
Joy Atkins, owner of Snax Cafe on Wellington Road, said she was pleased the condition had been applied to stop hot food being served.
She said: “Business are really struggling at the moment.
"There is a lot of competition for cafes, and the rates are really high. Times are hard.
“To have hot food being served on the market would have made things harder for us.”
Cllr Williams added: "It is good news about the hot food. It means the little cafes will not lose out, they pay rates and deserve to be looked after."
A report to the committee stated: "The past year and a half of operation suggests the concerns which have historically been raised by town retailers can be dealt with satisfactorily through separate market regulations.
It went on to say a study carried out on the market showed a “permanent open air retail market would not undermine the validity or viability of Rhyl Town Centre, and that the market offers opportunities which may be of benefit to all users and retailers in Rhyl Town centre”.
